Call for papers: 46th Architectural Science Association (ANZAScA) Conference
The 46th Annual Conference of the Architectural Science Association (ANZAScA) 2012.
Building on Knowledge: Theory and Practice

Griffith University is pleased to be hosting the 46th Annual Conference of the Architectural Science Association (formerly ANZAScA) Conference from November 14th to 16th, 2012. The 2011 Conference, “Building on Knowledge: Theory and Practice” will feature a two day conference on the 14th and 15th November, with each refereed paper presented in person by the author either as a poster or as an oral presentation. Site visit activities are planned for Friday 17th. The conference will be organised around a combination of plenary, parallel, and poster presentations, with keynote presentations each day at selected times. A welcome drinks evening (Tuesday) and a conference dinner (Thursday) will round out a busy program. The Conference will continue to draw attention to the applied research purpose of ASA (ANZAScA) and its place in relation to both the teaching and practice of architecture and related disciplines. The conference recognizes that the theoretical and practical knowledge base that underpins architecture is of necessity cross-disciplinary; and for this reason paper submissions from associated disciplines and areas of knowledge are particularly encouraged.

Architecture and the environmental
